East Aurora School District 131 had been in search of a new administrative center for several years. Avalon Heights is located across the street from Bardwell Elementary, a 1,000 student school.
As part of the intergovernmental agreement, the City has agreed to relocate and close streets to create a more cohesive connection between the new administrative center, Bardwell Elementary and Avalon Heights.
As part of this executed commercial lease, the existing power house building that is not landmarked will be demolished. A new connected structure will house the lobby, training space and community board room for the school district.
